11th National Forum on:

ERISA Litigation

Tuesday, March 01 to Wednesday, March 02, 2016
Omni Magnificent Mile, Chicago, IL

The premier ERISA litigation conference’s Chicago installment, led by an unparalleled faculty of in-house counsel, federal judges, and the top outside counsel plaintiff and defense litigators and firms. Attend to gain the highest-level litigation strategies involving benefit plans, plan investments and fiduciaries.

The latest round of ERISA claims and class actions are more complex than ever and the stakes involved for all parties are exceptionally high. There are huge variations in the types of cases that are arising, as well as substantive differences involved in defending and managing the various claims. In addition, the best plaintiff attorneys are involved in the cases. Throw in the current ERISA “environment” (including growing ranks of retirement-age demographic) and it’s entirely evident that in defending and managing these complex claims, counsel for companies, plan fiduciaries, sponsors, administrators, advisors and insurers face a distinct uphill battle.

Now, more than ever, there is simply no room for error in litigating these claims. In response, American Conference Institute is proud to introduce the 11th installment of the only ERISA Litigation conference that goes the extra mile and brings you the highest-level judicial insights and maximum networking opportunities with in-house industry experts.
